    We had a guy loose three fingers at the shop just a few weeks ago, it has taken a toll on our production..

    Hopefully the middle one survived
    :s :s


    That's terrible

    Nope, only his pinky and thumb..

    Couldn't be reattached?

    No, it crushed the fingers, I feel bad for the guy, he has been running the machine for over a year, when you watch the video it was just him not watching where his fingers were at..

    I worked construction one summer when I was like 19. Old carpenter dude cut off 2 fingers with his circular saw not paying attention. We called him 3 finger Oak.

    "I worked construction one summer when I was like 19. Old carpenter dude cut off 2 fingers with his circular saw not paying attention. We called him 3 finger Oak."

    Working in Arizona several years ago and had a tradesman of 'Spanish' descent cutting big 24" square tile and he evidently got distracted and lopped off a thumb & forefinger. Thereafter known as 'Three Fingers Tequila". He was pretty good natured about the nickname but man that would bite big time!

    I've been lucky all these years working around saws. Not so much with my power nailer. Hit a knot and had a 16 penny nail make a right turn into my thumb. broke the bone and made it useless for months.

    Amateurs... when I want to mess up my fingers, I chose the fan blades of an F/A-18... almost lost the tips of 4 of them at the joints.

    Well, I never received a shipping notice as was done in the past, but the transformer arrived a few minutes ago.

    Group buy members, please let me know when yours arrives.

    I'll send out confirmation requests later to those who don't confirm in this thread.

    Thanks for your patience!

    You are the Lightman... you don’t need no stinkin schematics. Just plug a couple bare wires straight into the wall and firmly grasp the others in your sweaty palms while standing in a bathtub.

    Well after a few hours of listening i am sold on this purchase of the Dreadnought. For me i have noticed more depth, width and an increase of my bass & mid bass. The sound is really improved for the better.

    I was going to go with a cut up MIT cable but, decided to use what i was originally using for an SDA cable. A Supra quad something or another. I wound up adding a jumper like i did when upgrading my 1C's so i am using all four connectors on the Neutric connector. An easy peasy job hooking up when using @DarqueKnight instructions. diqq5nc4u2uw.jpg

    Also, Larry this box is da bomb. This just adds to the total package with great looks & build. Quality through & through. Thank You Larry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
